Join us for the 8th Annual Marietta Mardi Gras 5k Fun Run + Walk on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017. This Peachtree Qualifier and USATF certified race starts and stops in Historic Marietta Square. This festive family-friendly race is fun for everyone!
The Marietta Mardi Gras 5k Fun Run + Walk is a major fundraiser for the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta (JLCM). The JLCM is an organization of over 300 women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the Marietta and Cobb County communities through the leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. Each year the JLCM contributes more than 14,000 volunteer hours to various community organizations that offer critical programs and services to women and children in our community.
Join us for the party! 5K + 1K + Tot Trot and music, refreshments and more!
We’ve added a new category this year for those who do not want or need the timed race. Sign up as a walker and you’ll enjoy the same 5k route and race benefits without the pressure of timing your progress. It’s all about reaching the finish line at your own pace.
Calling all Kings, Queens and Jesters!
All race participants encouraged to be a part of our Costume Contest! We love to see how creative our participants can be. A local celebrity will award prizes. Show us your Mardi Gras-style and celebrate! Best Costume will be awarded after the race.
